Green Pea Hummus Dip

 Recipe from the Yes Peas! Campaign, promoting peas in all of their seasonal glory.

Two billion portions of peas will be harvested this summer – that’s approximately 337 billion peas – by around 700 British pea growers. The UK is the largest producer and consumer of frozen peas in Europe, and the annual pea harvest season lasts just six to eight-weeks.

Each year, to celebrate the great British pea, we run a national Young Pea Chef competition which challenges young budding chefs to get creative with peas in the kitchen, including this recipe for green pea hummus dip.

Add the peas to a pan of boiling water and simmer for 3 minutes.
